This simple hobbit door is so easy to make from colored hardening clay that anyone can do it! Use it for jewelry, bookmarks etc. Makes a great Tolkien gift! This post is part of our Hobbit Day and Tolkien Week celebration! If you like it make sure to check out our DIY Lord of the Rings Art Wood Rack and Lembas Bread Recipe along with a mallorn leaf template to wrap it in.
Supplies for Hobbit Door
- Polymer Clay (I used Fimo)
- Pin for making lines in clay
- Tiny eyelet if desired.
- Jewelry findings, if desired.
- Drill with tiny bit.
- String if your using the drill.
- Mod Podge or other gloss coating.
I’m not the least bit artistic. (Not to be confused with creative.) What I mean is I can’t draw, paint or sculpt. My stick figures even kinda suck. So I tend to steer clear of crafts that require someone to have that ability. This is one of those crafts. My point being, if I can do this, anyone can do this.
After you’ve baked your clay you can give your Hobbit door or Gandalf a nice coating with some type of gloss. I used Mod Podge.
